Team Hero EBR Make Spanish Strides Forward At Jerez

May_Jerez

After their most encouraging weekend of the season so far last time out at Laguna Seca, Team Hero EBR returned to WorldSuperbike duty at a sunny Jerez with renewed optimism, narrowly missing out on a provisional Superpole qualifying position in the process after the opening day of on track action.

Both Geoff and Aaron looked comfortable immediately and with no technical glitches across the two sessions were able to make strides forward each time they went out on track.

Geoff currently sits 21st in the combined classification and within half a second of that all- important 20th position which would guarantee a start in Superpole 1 tomorrow afternoon. For Aaron, there a few tweaks to make overnight which should see both of the 1190RX machines achieving strong grid positions ahead of Sunday’s two 20 lap races.

Geoff May: “Jerez is definitely my favourite track and I really enjoyed riding my EBR 1190RX here. Today I had a good feeling with the bike and the track and I feel confident for a good position on the starting grid tomorrow.”

Aaron Yates: I had two good sessions and I worked hard with my mechanics in order to find the best setup. Tonight we will make some adjustments and I hope that tomorrow we will close the gap to the top 20 even more.”
